The New Rush Hall Group is an educational organisation based in the London Borough of Redbridge that works within a range of settings with children who are experiencing social, emotional and mental health difficulties. (SEMH)
The Group comprises an all age day special school, a behaviour support Outreach Team, two Pupil Referral Units (PRUs), the education provision at Brookside, which is an adolescent psychiatric unit and an multi-agency Early Years’ within the school campus. In reorganising resources and services in this way in 1999, the LB Redbridge paid recognition to the continuum of need for children and young people whose difficulties range from mild behavioural difficulties to more severe mental health problems. We aim to provide a ‘joined up’ strategic and management approach to meeting such needs.
The Governors and Management Committee of The New Rush Hall Group in conjunction with the LA manage and oversee all these resources and services. The essence of our work throughout the service is a commitment to facilitate personal growth and development for the youngsters with whom we work. Therefore we strive to find individual solutions to individual problems, within a framework that is needs driven, rather than resource driven. We aim to help in developing youngsters so that they get on with themselves, get on with others, and can stand on their own two feet and cope with life’s ups and downs.
The New Rush Hall Group is a creative and dynamic organisation at the cutting edge of specialist work with children and young people who have serious behavioural, emotional, mental health and social difficulties.
